Wilfred Grenfell -- C.S. Lewis -- James Clerk Maxwell -- Ghillean Prance -- Paul Brand -- Johann Sebastian Bach -- Samuel Morse -- George Washington Carver -- C.T. Studd -- John Bunyan -- Quiz.
These ten boys grew up to become successful men. The two things they have in common is that they all put to good use the talents and gifts they had, and they all believed that God had given them to be used. Paul Brand took medicine into new lands to bring hope to the sick; Ghillean Prance's love of the world around him led to Kew Gardens, still a centre of excellence in studying God's creation; C S Lewis opened the door into Narnia and opened the hearts of many to new faith; C T Studd excelled on the cricket and the mission field; Wilfred Grenfell was an energetic explorer of the Arctic; J S Bach's music still inspires millions, as Christ inspired him; James Clerk Maxwell's faith in God's ordering of the universe led to key discoveries in science; Samuel Morse patented many inventions one of which has saved many lives; George Washington Carver could have discovered fortune and fame but he followed the Lord; John Bunyan was imprisoned to shut him up yet wrote a classic that still speaks today.--Back cover.
